Onion Dosa / வெங்காயம் தோசை / Onion Podi Dosa / Crispy Crepes with Onions & Coriander Leaves

I always wanted to post Onion Dosa recipe in my blog. I know it is simple to make, but this is my favorite.. I eat it always..So how would i not post it in 'MY' blog..Onion dosa is pretty easy to make, but i add some extra special things like coriander leaves and idli podi in mine..I think it taste great that way..

The key to a good onion dosa is the bottom should be crispy but the top should be little bit soft..So you should cook the bottom layer a little longer than the top..I thought of posting it for the letter 'O' for the cooking with alphabets series..

I hope you will like it and tell me how it came out..I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 5 with the theme 'Cooking with Alphabets'.

Makes : 1 Huge Dosa


Dosa Batter - 1 cup( Makes one huge dosa) (Click here for batter recipe)
Idli podi - as needed ( You can buy in any super market)
Onion - 1 large finely chopped
Coriander leaves / Cilantro - 4 tblspn finely chopped
Oil- 3 tblspn


Heat a tawa on high heat.When it is hot. Take a cup of batter and spread it like dosa(Not so thinly, make it a little thicker)

Sprinkle it with lots of finely chopped onion, coriander leaves and idli podi and press it slightly…

Drizzle some oil all around the sides as well as middle…Let it cook till the botton crisp up.

Flip over carefully and cook only for a min. Drizzle more oil if needed.

Remove and serve hot.
